These famous thinkers believe life is short too, and they offer some thoughts as to how to enjoy your life while you can. What are some of your biggest YOLO moments?
“Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind.”
-Henri Frederic Amiel

“Life is short. You have to be able to laugh at our pain or we never move on.”
“Time is long but life is short.”
“Life is short, and it is here to be lived.”
“I feel that life is short, so we should be disciplined, but at the same time we should have a good time.”
“I’m 47. You learn life is short and it’s not worth doing something if you don’t enjoy it.”
“The only rule is don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in.”
